Test your knowledge of soil moisture and its effect on global populations. Soil moisture is the amount of water contained in the soil.
Evolution of the SMAP sea surface salinity (SSS) and soil moisture responses to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria of 2017.
The Geosphere is associated with solid portions of the Earth. It includes the continental and oceanic crust and all other layers of the Earth's interior. This includes all rocks, sediments and soils, surface landforms and the processes that shape the Earth's surface.
Please consider using this graphic organizer to help students analyze the processes and components of Earth System phenomena.
The purpose of this activity is for students to create a desktop soil profile based on the biome region of the United States where your school is located.
NASA Worldview is a free online visualization tool that is a great launchpad for learners who are new (or
Scientific data are often represented by assigning ranges of numbers to specific colors. The colors are then used to make an images which allow us to see patterns more easily. Students will make a false color image using a set of numbers.
Students review Earth System phenomena that are affected by soil moisture. They analyze and evaluate maps of seasonal global surface air temperature and soil moisture data from NASA satellites.
Information from satellites if often used to display information about objects. This information can include how things appear, as well as their contents. Explore how pixel data sequences can be used to create an image and interpret it.
Visualize NASA data on a custom map or graph using our Earth System Data Explorer. Generate your own maps and graphs using a range of datasets supporting this phenomenon.
